TRAVIS SNIDER RUMORS

Where Would Steven Brault Rank in the Pirates 2015 Top 50?

On Friday, the Pittsburgh Pirates announced that they acquired left-handed pitching prospect Steven Brault from the Baltimore Orioles, completing the Travis Snider trade. Brault joins Stephen Tarpley to give the Pirates two left-handed pitchers in return for Snider. Our 2015 Prospect Guide features the top 50 prospects in the system, although the cut off date for transactions was...

News and notes: Pace of play, replay, Snider trade

Pace of play has been a hot topic all winter, and we finally have a resolution (at least for now) with MLB announcing some rule changes on Friday. Essentially, hitters will need to keep one foot in the box after taking a pitch, and inning breaks will be (somewhat) strictly limited to 2 minutes and 25 seconds (plus 20 more seconds for national TV games). There are exceptions, and...

Pirates Acquire Steven Brault as PTBNL in Travis Snider Deal

The Pittsburgh Pirates announced on Friday that they received 22-year-old left-handed starter Steven Brault from the Baltimore Orioles as the player to be named later in the Travis Snider trade. The Pirates also received lefty Stephen Tarpley from the Orioles when the trade was made back on January 27th. Brault had a 2.77 ERA and 124 strikeouts in 146.1 innings in 2014, splitting...

Baltimore Orioles make trades, re-sign former outfielder

The Baltimore Orioles are coming off the busiest week of their off-season following months of inactivity and controversy surrounding General Manager Dan Duquette.  After acquiring outfielder Travis Snider from the Pittsburgh Pirates last week, Duquette has made a few more moves in the efforts to make the post-season for the second consecutive year. Duquette’s possible departure...

Pirates Sell High on Travis Snider

Maximizing value is the key to success for any resource starved low revenue major league baseball team. Pittsburgh Pirates General Manager Neal Huntington has a fairly strong track record when it comes to buying low on talent. His eye for finding undervalued assets is one of the biggest reasons the Pirates have turned into a contender after so many years of being a laughingstock...

The PTBNL in the Travis Snider Trade Won’t Be Determined Until Spring Training

Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports in Baltimore had an update on the Travis Snider trade today, saying that he’s hearing the player to be named later won’t be determined until Spring Training. Last night I wrote about the possibilities for the PTBNL, noting that it might be a 2014 draft pick that can’t be traded until mid-season. I don’t think this news rules that out. Kubatko has...

Baltimore Orioles add outfield depth, acquire Snider

In their most notable move of the off-season thus far, the Baltimore Orioles acquired outfielder Travis Snider from the Pittsburgh Pirates in exchange for left-handed pitching prospect Stephen Tarpley and another player to be named later. Reports of the Orioles’ interest in Snider began circulating during the Winter Meetings, but heated up in the days prior to the trade being completed...

Pirates send Travis Snider to the Orioles for Steven Tarpley

The Pirates and Orioles agreed on a trade to send Travis Snider to Baltimore tonight in exchange for minor league lefty Steven Tarpley and a player to be named later. On its face, this seems like a bit of a strange move for a contender to make: even if you assume that Gregory Polanco was going to start in right field over Snider (he was), Snider is a relatively cheap, relatively...

First Pitch: Did the Pirates Make a Mistake Trading Snider, Or Are They Selling High?

I found myself going back and forth between two thoughts when thinking about the Travis Snider trade this evening. The first thought involved thinking about the possibility that Snider could be the next Brandon Moss. The Pirates got Moss in the Jason Bay deal, hoping that his power potential would translate over to the majors. It never did, although he did have a huge season with...

Travis Snider traded to Orioles

The Pirates sent Travis Snider to Baltimore in exchange for pitching prospect Stephen Tarpley and another player to be named later on Tuesday night.  Just when it was looking like the Bucs were done making moves for the winter, Neal Huntington struck again…although this one is a bit of a head scratcher so far. Although there hadn’t been any rumors leading up to this, it shouldn’t...
